The CRDM student blog is incredibly proud of Dr. Jeff Swift, long time blog editor here, for successfully defending this dissertation. His project, entitled “Flash Publics: A Rhetorical Recuperation of Public Sphere Theory in a Digital Age,” was chaired by Carolyn R. Miller and examines digital activism and online deliberation. His full committee includes Victoria Gallagher, Matt May, and David Reider.
While completing his dissertation, Dr. Swift has been an engaged and active member of the CRDM community, having run this blog for several years, the Rhetoric Society of America student chapter, and volunteered just about any time someone asked for help planning or running an event.
Congratulations, Dr. Swift, and thank you for your fine contributions to the CRDM program.
